(ANSA-AFP) - MOSCOW, SEP 27 - Elections officials said Tuesday that eligible voters in Russia had overwhelmingly cast their ballots in favour of the Kremlin annexing four Moscow-controlled regions of Ukraine. At least 96 percent of voters in Russia cast their ballots in favour of annexation after at least 15 percent of ballots were counted, news agencies carrying data from election officials said. Ukraine and its allies have denounced the referendums as a "sham" and an attempt at a land grab. (ANSA-AFP).
